Ian Thomas – Painted Ladies lyrics

Painted ladies
Ian Thomas
words & music: Ian Thomas

I remember setting out just to see what I could see
Streetcars rolling by and airplanes flying high they all meant nothing to me
No one ever looked my way or knew that I was there
I kept walking and the rain kept raining
Until all the streets were bare

Oo feeling fine mama
Painted ladies and a bottle of wine mama
Oo Feeling good mama
They took my money like I knew they would
La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la

City lights were shining on me through my window pane
I kept thinking 'bout the day when I'd be home again
Rocking chairs and summer fairs and swimming in the sea
I kept drinking, sinking 'till there was nothing left of me

Oo feeling fine mama
Painted ladies and a bottle of wine mama
Oo Feeling good mama
They took my money like I knew they would
La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la

From: "John Kenny"

    In the early 70's it was common for young folk to hitch-hike everywhere, anywhere, and always. There was an innocent freedom.
    Basically, Ian wrote this song about coming of age, heading out, and partying your face off!(that wasn't even an expression back then) There were no consequences. Nothing that a shot from the doc couldn't cure.
    The song received extra support because it was about wine and women at a time when most artists were singing about illicit drug adventures.
    By the way, Ian is now acting. You can see him on the Red Green Show (along with his "monster trucks")
